I have two DC, one is a Windows Server 2003 (certificate server), the other is Windows Server 2008 R2. The Windows Server 2008 R2 has the following events in the event viewer.
Source: Microsoft-Windows-CertificateServicesClient-AutoEnrollment Event ID: 6 Automatic certificate enrollment for local system failed (0x800706ba) The RPC server is unavailable.
Source: Microsoft-Windows-CertificateServicesClient-CertEnroll Event ID: 13 Certificate enrollment for Local system failed to enroll for a DomainController certificate with request ID N/A from 2003DCinternal.domain.com\DOMAIN-Root-CA.domain.com (The RPC server is unavailable. 0x800706ba (WIN32: 1722)).
I've read a few things over the internet:
Certificate enrollment for Local system failed to enroll Event ID:13
Seems to indicate that I should check if I already have a certificate installed. I open the
Certificates MMC Snap-in on the 2008 R2 server having the errors and go to
Certificates. From there I see a certificate for localhost issued by localhost (could that indicate a part of my problem?).
I've also seen other stuff indicating that 2003 servers can not generate the correct certificates for 2003 or Windows 7 computers.
Other than that Google doesn't really have any thing that solidly explains what the issue is.
Could someone help me understand how to troubleshoot this?
